eyen on the tiny island of cyprus. michelle caruso-cabrera. what is this controversy all about? >> reporter: well, this country about six months ago went to the other countries in europe and said we need a lot of help. we need 17 billion euros because we have a bank that's on the verge of collapse and we need -- we've gotten less tax revenue because of the recession. and so, remember, the europeans have already bailed out greece, portugal, ireland. so when cyprus went to them, we'll lend you $10 billion. you guys have to come up with $7 billion. and the way the cyprus economy is structured, it's almost all banks. huge banks relative to the size of the economy. and so the solution they came up with was taxing deposits in banks. that has turned out to be incredibly controversial. last night the parliament here voted it down even though there had been intense negotiations for weeks about it. now today, it's about plan "b" and it's not clear whether there will be a plan "b." the banks are closed, only get money out of atms, the financial system here on the verge of collapse. and if

in with with my cube mate in cyprus. michelle, you made it. >> reporter: yeah, we made it finally after lots of delays. now it's mission critical and a search for plan b. last night the parliament roundly said we don't want to attach the deposits of the banking system here. but the situation is they still have to come up with nearly 6 billion euros. remember what the end game here. this country has gone to other european countries and said we need a total of 17 billion euro toss bail out our banks and keep our government afloat. and they said we'll give you 10 billion. you have to contribute something yourself. you know where all the money is in this country? it's in the banking system. it's a huge banking system, eight times the size of their economy. consider this, brian, if the us banking system was as big relative to the u.s. economy as cyprus is, we would have 45 more banks the size of jpmorgan in the united states. that's how big it is. that's why there's a need to tax deposits. that's where the money is. that's the only way this country will be able to come up with it. that's the stru

licks. late today president obama released a statement saying, "michelle and i offer our warm wishes to his holiness pope francis. as a champion of the poor and the most vulnerable among us he carries forth the message of love and compassion that has inspired the world for more than 2,000 years." vice president biden will lead the u.s. delegation to the vatican for the formal ceremony making the pope's installation. pope francis is the first pope from the americas. he's the first to take his papal name from st. francis. the friar who more than 800 years ago took a vow of poverty and devoted his life to helping the poor and the sick. in fact, pope francis is known as a humble man of simple habits. the ap says he often rode the public bus to work, cooked his own meals, and often visited poor neighborhoods. francis is also the first pope to come from the jets with order, an order with a long tradition in work and civil rights in this country. this new pope has a unique ability to focus the world's attention on the sick and the poor. the wrongs we inflict on each other and the rights we
michelle batchmckm? >> he had never accused george w. bush being in the nazi party. she had accused obama of being in the communist party. he was an outlier. most, 90% of your candidates last year -- >> my candidates? i voted for obama last time. >> the republican party candidates were outliers, off the playing field. the republicans and this is a conservative conference. this isn't a republican conference. they've gone so far off the map. it's affected what's happened in the house as well. it was the house republicans who invited the tea partiers to have a rally on the capital grounds against the health care bill in which they called obama a nazi. nothing like this ever happened on the democratic side. >> isn't the difference between the two, i think is that when people were calling bush you know, doing hitler references to bush, the party itself didn't empower them. whereas the republican party decided to specifically empower the conservative movement. >> and kowtow to them. >> right, kasie, al cardness, in charge of the american conservative union that puts on cpac, he had an interesti
, just like michelle obama, telling wild lies about harvard law school to entertain right wingers. ted cruz is finding that his lying game doesn't work quite so smoothly in washington. today, he prefaced a question on gun control to dianne feinstein with a lecture about the constitution. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> really? he droned on in his lecture as if he was saying things that his senator students didn't know. about the constitution. finally, the junior senator got to his question. >> and the question that i would pose to the senior senator from california is, would she deem it consistent with the bill of rights for congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the second amendment in the context of the first or fourth amendment. namely, would she consider it constitutional that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not ap
-presidents the first year. the second year will be michelle luhan gresham from new mexico. and a terrific congressman from maryland, john delaney. >> who we met just last week here. congressman cartwright i want to start with you. i know you guys had a bipartisan meeting last week with bill gates. i hear all this talk. luke messer has been on here before with other freshmen democrats. that this freshman class is intent on trying to put something together. is there any chance you guys are going to be able to do stuff together that is on the budget process itself? >> well, chuck, there's -- first of all, i want to say i'm appearing live from the beautiful sordony theater in downtown piston, pennsylvania, which is between joe biden's hometown of scranton and wilksbury. so proud to represent northeastern pennsylvania as you've described. i want to say, there are going to be things that folks like luke and i never will agree on. but what we understand is that there are a lot more things that we will agree on. and if we spend more time together, such as in social outings and things like the bill gates lect
secondary. and i think that's a prescription for that kind of tea party, michele bachmann/sarah palin crowd to start roaring again. i'll be fascinated to see the reaction. >> i think that's an interesting point about the rise of tea party economics. the total hostility, any notion, any concept of a welfare state f of the problem that was outline, basically the problem, we always hear about the demographic problem. the majority, nonwhites and young people and single women, if you look at this group and its basic attitude toward government it favors a more activist government. it favors the safety net. if the republican party wants to appeal to this rising coalition, anything it does will automatically alienate its current coalition. do you see any way to merge those two? >> look, it is a tough sell. i think you put your finger on a really big problem. i would add that a lot of republicans are not on board with this at all. i was e-mailing with someone i'll describe as having been closed to the romney campaign who said he thought the document was good. it has a lot of good ideas but the funda
michelle mal kin, and rush limbaugh said the republican party is getting bam boozeled. how difficult is it for the gop to really be transformed? how hard is going to be for them to see a different way? >> i think it's going to be a real challenge for them. i think having priebus come out and say this is the way we're going to transform the party is one thing, but in reality he's not on the ground. he's not the one sitting in senate or congress or even in the state houses. he's really a figurehead, and really the party itself is going to have to decide whether they want to go the way of reince priebus or go in the three other directions that they're going. >> i don't want to say three blind mice. thank you so very much. >>> this man is comparing president obama to the devil again? that's next. we're in san francisco. google's backyard for the bing it on challenge.

a moment. >> let's do take a ploem to celebrate our women veterans. that was first lady michelle obama this morning honoring 14 women vets as champions of change in their communities and giving an update on her push to get the country's biggest corporations to hire more veterans on this tenth anniversary of the iraq war. let's remember that the unemployment rate for iraq and afghanistan veterans stands at 9.4%. well above the national average. and for women, it is actually even worse with an 11.6% unemployment rate. our next grefts two women on a mission to change that by giving our veterans the tools they need to go from battlefield to boss. with us now, the founder, president and ceo of count me in for women's economic independence, and c.j. scarlet, a former marine and founder of roving coach. and c.j., let's start with you. do you think that military service gives women a particular leg up when it comes to being entrepreneurs and actually striking out on their own, starting their own business? >> absolutely. i believe that the military gives you this opportunity to develop discipli
's the vision that is shared by both our nations. and that is shimon peres' life work. and michelle and i have such fond memories of your visit to the white house. last spring when i was honored to present you with america's highest civilian honor, our medal of freedom. and that medal was a tribute to your extraordinary life in which you held virtually every position in the israeli government. today was another opportunity -- from the historic changes taking place across the region to the perils of a nuclear armed iran, to the perils and peace between israelis and palestinians to the promise of our digital age. one of the advantages of talking to president peres is not only does he have astonishing vision, but he's also pretty practical-minded politician. and consistently has good advice in terms of how we can approach many of these problems. i reaffirmed to president peres as i will throughout my visit that in this work, the state of israel will have no greater friend than the united states. and the work we do in our time will make it more likely the children that we saw today alongside child
money for food assistance program. >> right. >> when michele bachmann shoek at cpac on saturday she made a gross falsehood, a claim about money for poverty programs winding up in the hands of bureaucrats. let me read how "the washington post" concludes its four pinocchio ruling on that claim. so bachmann yet again earns four pinocchios but there really aren't enough pinocchios so such misleading use of statistics in a major speech. sir, if there is one kook in that house, she surely must qualify. >> well, you know, she is standing up for her ideological position, which is -- >> congressman, she's telling lies. that's not an ideological position, that's an outright lie. >> true, martin, but it does sort of advance what argument she wants to make, which is that, you know, poor people have too much and rich people don't have enough, which is why she's always trying to cut programs that serve the poor and cut taxes for the rich. it may not be true, but it also serves her position and her vision of america. and so that's kind of why she keeps on getting invited back to stuff like cpac, becaus
in a series of irresponsible and reckless provocations. >>> and minnesota republican congresswoman michele bachmann she spoke at cpac this morning, criticized what she called the extravagances of the obama white house. >> we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog, paying for someone to walk the president's dog? now, why are we doing that when we can't even get a disabled veteran into the white house for a white house tour? >>> and in just a few minutes from now, saratoga springs, utah, mayor mia love will be delivering a major address to cpac conservatives. last fall, she was one of the featured speakers at the republican national convention as a candidate for congress. if she won, she would have been the first black female ever elected to congress as republican but she lost that race by a narrow mar jane, about 1%. mayor mia love joins me now from the cpac convention. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> you are -- >> i can't see you. good to hear you. >> you are not missing much. you're going to be speaking there in a few minutes, i understand. what d

military families i believe headed up by dr. jill biden and michelle obama is that at all helping? what are we talking about here? >> it is helping. we've made progress around veterans unemployment, still too high. and we expect it will continue to go up with sequester now, with more and more people coming home. and i think that's been a good jump start. the first lady's brought a lot of corporate attention on the issue. but there are other issues, as well. we've got a sky high suicide rate that's really out of control and no one can seem to get a handle on it. almost every single one of the dozens of veterans here in washington personally knows someone who has committed suicide. we're losing more soldiers to suicide than we are to combat. these are the issues that the veterans community are focused on now. we're going to relitigate the war and go over the analysis in iraq, but we also need to understand what's going on on the ground in communities. >> great point. >> we can control what happens over the next ten years. and you've been a fierce defender of these mesh heroes for a decade
